Imelda Labbé, Member of the Volkswagen Board of Management responsible for Sales, Marketing and After Sales, said: “The GTI Fanfest is a party for, and shaped by, fans. It’s all about them, and they make the meet-up what it is – a gathering that’s brimming with passion for the Volkswagen brand and all things four-wheeled.” With anticipation among the community at a high, organisers are expecting a crowd of up to 35,000 people to attend from all over the world.

The creative programme of events puts a special focus on fans’ personal wishes and realises a number of ideas put forward by the community. This includes, for example, personalised footwear, with a shoe designer who is also an enthusiast coming up with a series of GTI-themed sneakers. Visitors will be able to buy these collectors’ items at the event or bring their own sneakers to be customised in person.

Other festival highlights include the presentation of a new GTI lifestyle collection, a GTI parade through VW’s Wolfsburg factory and plenty of owners’ cars on display, with fans able to register their models at the event.

Elsewhere, GTI variants from across all eight generations of the Golf will make an appearance around the VfL Wolfsburg Bundesliga club stadium, as well as GTI versions of the Lupo, Polo02 and up!03 will be on show at locations around the stadium of the VfL Wolfsburg Bundesliga club. Volkswagen will also give visitors a glimpse of the all-electric future of the brand by showcasing the sporty GTX versions of its ID. family and presenting the ID. GTI Concept01.

Influencer JP Performance will exhibit his ‘Super-Golf’ along with the ‘Thunder Bunny’; community cars and special Volkswagen show cars will feature; and a mobile engine testing stand will be set up in the community car park for GTI and R drivers.
